BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Tuesday, the Birmingham Board of Education is meeting to discuss possible cuts in after-school care. The school board is considering reducing 16 after-school location down to six.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m., but board members have been clear that no final decisions have been made yet—the reduction of after-school care locations is just a possibility at this point.

According to school leaders, if cuts are made, the school system will bus children to new after-school care locations. The cost of the program will remain the same as it was last semester: $40 a week.

We will cover this meeting live on the CBS42 News at 5 and 6 and bring you updates as they develop.
